Ever since I’ve started my BodyTech Fitness Transformation Program I’ve been dying to have a “high calorie day” (read: CHEAT DAY!). I’ve been waiting and waiting until I could finally snack and enjoy some foods that are cut out of my diet.
FINALLY… Kevin Fletcher, Director of Operations from BodyTech Fitness said that I could have my high calorie day, one day last weekend.
Since I was working on Friday and Saturday, I decided that SUNDAY would be the day I’ve been waiting for!
I made a list of everything I wanted to eat… So that I didn’t forget anything. I even sectioned off when I would eat what. (I am very organized!)
Late Saturday night I hit the grocery store and racked up a nice $60.00 bill in JUNK FOOD!
I was so excited I went to bed nice and early!
At 8:30 am I got up and started my day with some greek yogurt (totally healthy, but not on my diet), skittles (yum!) and gold fish crackers (I love fishies cause they’re soooo delicious… gotta gooo fishing!).
I filled myself up and decided it was time to go back to sleep!
At 11 am I woke back up and made breakfast!
I had eggs benny! My favorite breakfast EVER! — Just so you know, eggs benny is made with atleast half a cup of butter… and then another cup of milk… talk about high fat and high calories! I slattered the butter on my english muffin as well, and fried up some ham! It was deeeelicious! Prior to my program, I probably ate eggs benny at least once every 2 weeks. EEK!
I then proceeded to drink an entire carton of Orange Juice. I have really missed juice! It was soooo good!
Had some strawberries and a banana. I have been missing fruit too!
Then of course, I finished my breakfast off with more skittles and gold fish.
In the afternoon I celebrated my version of Valentines Day with my BF and we went to get a couples massage. I ate skittles the entire drive there. What’s funny about this, is that I never even ate skittles before my BF… and somehow he got me addicted to them! They were ALWAYS the last candy I chose.
After our massages, we ordered a tasty medium deep dish pepperoni pizza from pizza hut (I obviously had to go for the tastiest but most unhealthy pizza I could find!) I think I had about 3 pieces… maybe 4. I can’t remember. But I do remember that it was FANTASTIC!
Then I ate cookie dough straight from the package… I had meant to make cookies but I was too tired from the pizza that I just ate about a 1/4 of the package and then took a nap.
I woke up about 2.5 hours later extremely groggy.
My BF took me to Spoon and Fork which is a Sushi/Thai all you can eat restaurant. One of my faves!!!
We had 2 cashew chickens, a spicy salmon roll, shrimp tempura, beef teriyaki, steamed rice, peanut chicken, edamame.
I also had a lychee martini which was my first alcoholic beverage since New Years Eve.
AND THEN IT HIT ME. I WAS SO FULL I ACTUALLY WANTED TO DIE.
After a few trucker burps (if you know me, you know what I’m talking about) I was feeling a bit better.
We took the dogs for a digestion walk (my favorite thing to do after a big meal) and then I was good for some dessert.
I made some raspberry turnovers, which I don’t normally eat, but my BF lives 5 minutes away from the Mr. Christie’s factory and recently we’ve walked the dogs at the time they are apparently making blueberry turnovers. The smell has been driving me crazy, so I needed to eat some!
I ate 3. Had some BBQ crispers and called it a day somewhere around 11:30pm.
I noticed that since I stayed away from foods that are deep fried or have oil that I actually didn’t feel too bad. The shrimp tempura bothered my stomach a bit. But for the most part I was feeling okay.
I woke up the next day feeling nice and bloated.
Kevin directed me to weigh myself so that I could see how having an off day now and then (when I’m in maintenance) will affect my weight.
I had gained 3.5 lbs. WOW! (I was 129 on Friday and 132.5 yesterday morning).
Kevin assured me that once I got back on track with my diet I’d lose it in a couple days, as it was mostly water weight.
This morning I am 131 lbs. … If you didn’t know Kevin is pretty much God. He knows what’s going to happen before it happens!
So I had my cheat day, got my cravings out and I am ready to go hard this month to bring my lean muscle up and my fat down!
I was 24% body fat at my last measure, so I am hoping to hit my goal of 18-20% after this month.
Tomorrow I train with Linda, another BodyTech Fitness trainer.
This will be my first workout with her and I’m excited to see what she brings to the team!
I’ll update you later in the week!
Happy Valentines Day!
P.S Sorry I didn’t take any photos of all the food I ate, I was too busy eating!!! But check out Ian Karvelas’ high calorie day here, he took loads of pictures and pigged out just as much as I did!!!
